Daya's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking Daya for your party.

CTI can give you the accurate Daya booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Daya for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final Daya booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Daya charge for an event. An example fee to book Daya is in the starting range of $40,000-$74,999. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price as well. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
There is low probability to book Daya for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Daya agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Daya, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Daya booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Daya, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
